Best Weekday Secret

Bull Creek District Park

These 11 miles of limestone waters mark the best-kept secret weekday getaway. There are dozens of trails, boulders, cliffs, seeps, springs, and waterways to satisfy your inner Yogi Bear, and little to no crowds if you go on a Monday or Tuesday. Have the kids (or very skinny adults) slide down the small channeled waterfalls, and check out the "secret area" – just look for the concrete stairs. Use the park entrance by Xiang Yun Temple on Loop 360.
